The Dell Vostro lineup is dedicated to “businesses with little to no IT support” and is designed to combine “portability, value and performance”, according to Dell.
Today, Apple unveiled its flagship laptop, the new uber-pricey Macbook Pro, however, many professionals would rather get a “bang for the buck” device.
The Vostro 3360, 3460 and 3560 laptops – 13-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch, respectively – could bring that on the table. Featuring options such as options such as the latest Intel 3rd generation processors, standard 4GB DDR3 RAM, HD (1366×768) WLED Anti-Glare Displays , 6-cell batteries on the 3460 and 3560 (4-cell battery on the 3360), optional 4G LTE support (Vostro 3360 & 3460) with Dell NetReady. Configured with a 32GB mSATA SSD card, theyall feature fast boot-up, thanks to Intel Rapid Start Technology.
On the security and business service side, the Vostro lineup offers standard fingerprint reader, file and folder encryption via DigitalPersona File Protection software, Trend Micro security software for data protection, and Dell DataSafe Online Backup for online backup with remote storage.
The Vostro 3560 is available now on Dell.com, starting at $599. The Vostro 3360 (starting at $649) and Vostro 3460 (starting at $599) will be available from June 21st on Dell.com. All laptops come in three colors: Aberdeen Silver, Brisbane Bronze and Lucerne Red.
